Kirsty is the award-winning author of four Young Adult novels. She is currently writing the screenplay for the movie adaptation of Raw Blue.
Kirsty works with stories, telling her own, and helping others tell theirs. Each year, she speaks to thousands of students, inviting them to create, not just consume, and choose action over distraction.
She sees storytelling as an essential life skill, a powerful force for connection and change, improving empathy and creative thinking.
She believes storytelling is best learned by doing.
With that in mind, Kirsty is sharing her knowledge in online courses and workshops for students, based on her ten years of experience teaching story and writing.
They are fun, fast and get results.
